GPS trackers: Give drivers positive reviews
Whether people want to admit it or not, they love to be praised for a job well done. On the flip side, customers love to give bad reviews. Research from M.Farouk Radwan states that people need to be emotionally charged and the result can often be a negative review. With that being said, if your company drivers are still driving around with a bumper sticker asking for customers to report in on their driving abilities, it would be a little difficult to trust those reviews as most people only like to leave bad reviews. GPS trackers are revolutionizing the way managers are controlling costs, monitoring vehicles and even drivers.
Thanks to live GPS trackers, companies have the ability to know a drivers etiquette. Even more importantly, the information can be used to give positive recognition to your drivers. The GPS trackers in each vehicle can alert managers of driver behaviors like recorded speed, braking and lane shifts. The live map shows all drivers in a fleet and alerts can be set to be sent every five seconds if need be, to managers or dispatchers.
This type of information can be used to emphasize the positive aspects, like increased safety, not getting lost, saving the company money and highlighting the great drivers you have on your team. With GPS trackers managers won’t have to worry about getting an outside perspective of driver performance. Furthermore, by drivers receiving positive feedback from their direct managers they are likely to value the opinions more. GPS trackers just allow for a better way for drivers to know they are being recognized for their importance.
It’s easy to see how GPS tracking gives companies an entire overview of their fleet team’s efficiency level. It is recommended to give drivers recognition on a regular basis and pinpoint specifically which areas your drivers are excelling. Remember, people love to be praised!
